…more to come -Town Clerk
City Hall has spent more than $131M to date as part of efforts to clean up the Capital City while incorporating a communities’ involvement approach and this will continue.
City Town Clerk, Royston King, who has dubbed the fairly new initiative a resounding success, said thus far some 72 communities have benefitted from that initiative which was contracted out to 50 contractors with specific stipulations.
“That particular project was extremely successful in our estimation. So far we have spent $131M with respect to the community projects and we will continue to do it but at present we are waiting on some more releases from the public purse (Submission from the Treasury) so that we can involve other local community groups to do similar works in other parts of Georgetown.”
King further informed that it is the Council’s belief that if persons are involved in cleaning their local area they will exercise more pride and ownership while policing to ensure that there would be less prevalence of a dirty city.
This move is to ensure that more residents participate in cleaning their area. It will also help us to do better at sustaining what we are doing in these local communities. This project, he said, is one being undertaken aside from the direct capital projects being undertaken by City Hall through private large scale contractors.
Last weekend the Town Clerk and a team visited the Charlestown area on Saffon Street where one of several direct works was being completed to accommodate vendors who ply their trade on the road way in the vicinity of La Penitence market especially at weekends.
“We are moving to clear a plot of land directly opposite the La Penitence Market to accommodate those persons who normally take over the road way and leave the drains and road way clogged and we will also be moving to other areas shortly to ensure that the entire city is clean and green,” King explained.
